Anger over 3-year wait at 'gender identity' service.

Aug 14, 2020

Local LGBT group - Yeovil Pride - has expressed concerns over the time taken for its members to be seen by the NHS "gender identity" service in the South West. The service that treats people experiencing distress because of a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity currently has a 3-year appointment backlog. The NHS says the long wait time is due to a 500-percent rise in referrals to the service in the past 3-years.
